Mention Delifrance and one would conjure up images of its delectable tarts and pastries, which are perennial office party favourites; crusty baguettes, perfect companion for homey chicken curries or just with a dollop of quality butter. Also not forgetting its popular buttery croissants stuffed end-to-end with tuna/egg or chicken mayo (whatever fillings you fancy) oozing out from the leaves of crisp salads.

Last weekend, Delifrance, Singapore’s pioneer and most iconic French-style café hosted some Daddy Bloggers and our kids to a fun-filled Mothers’ Day Handicraft Session where we made (yes we did!) 3D Memo Holders using air-clay as an early Mother’s Day gift. This being our first time handling and modelling with air-clay, I would say we did a fairly decent job (thanks to the help of the patient instructor!). When it comes to gifts, it’s always the thought that counts right? All three clay memo holders now sit proudly on our study table at home.

2. ‘Garden of Love’ $42.80 (700g) – a vanilla sponge cake filled with mango and yogurt mousse accompanied by white chocolate coating, adorned with bright sunflowers, dainty butterfly and a pink heart.
3. ‘Blossom of Love’ $12.90 (250g) – a stalk of two flowers in flower pots: with a choice of either vanilla sponge cake with lemon cream and white chocolate or a chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese filling. Both cakes use macarons to form the center core of their chocolate flowers bouquet.
